With our partner easyJet Holidays, these are the best seaside hotels and family-friendly resorts in Sicily
Hotel Olimpo Le Terrazze
Best for… amazing views
The gorgeous Bay of Taormina is everything you dream of when you dream of Sicily: deep, blue waves breaking on white sand, along a beach that curves between two forested cliffs. So why not stay in a room where you can Instagram that view from bed? Overlooking the pretty palm-lined streets of Letojanni, this beautiful hotel – at the heart of which is a spectacular rooftop pool with views down to the ocean – enjoys one of the most privileged positions on the east coast.

Grand Palladium Sicilia Resort and Spa
Best for… luxury family holiday
A brand new, 5-star hotel in a stunning location between the mountains and the sea in northern Sicily. From the glistening, windowed spa to the tennis courts, the scented gardens to the fine dining Mediterranean restaurant, it’s steeped in luxury, with a fun-loving side that means you can treat your whole family. Kids’ clubs for all ages mean you’re free to indulge at the sports bar or sauna, guilt-free. Cefalu, just 15 minutes away, boasts winding medieval streets and a famous white sand beach.

Eurostars Monte Tauro
Best for… a touch of luxury
An utterly unique hotel built into a beautiful bluff overlooking the dazzling Ionian Sea. The little balconies that dot its front offer some of the best views you can get of the Gulf of Naxos, while little elegant flourishes including silk finishes and exotic wood mean that the interior feels just as spectacular. Great for gourmets, its restaurant specialises in refined Mediterranean food inspired by the coast: don’t get too distracted by the view from its glass-walled terrace.
Via Madonna Delle GrazieBook with easyJet Holidays
Hotel Caesar Palace
Best for… sumptuous Sicily
Cloaked in greenery, this spectacular hotel is lush in every sense of the word: the climbing plants that wind around its courtyards and patios, the huge outdoor pool (a great place to try traditional Sicilian ice), and the tranquil sandy beach it borders. A mini club, play area and kids’ pool make this an indulgent stay for all ages – although parents in particular will appreciate the taverna-style bar, with live music in the evening.
Via Consolare ValeriaBook with easyJet Holidays
Hotel Villa Diodoro
Best for… amazing views
One of the most spectacular stays on the coast, this luxurious hotel has views of Mount Etna that will take your breath away. Dominating the skyline above the tranquil Bay of Naxos, it’s best taken in from the outdoor pool or over a candlelit dinner at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant. Splash out on a room with a view to be able to watch the lava tumble down Etna’s slopes from bed – a truly unforgettable experience.
Via Bagnoli CrociBook with easyJet Holidays
Best for… a peaceful stay
Tucked away in a tranquil, forested cove on the beautiful Bay of Taormina, this undiscovered gem offers a truly authentic slice of the Sicilian seaside. All gentle pastels and natural furnishings that mirror the spectacular sunsets you can watch from its balconies, it’s a haven, close to the dazzling tourist spots – Etna and the Greek theatre – that make this part of the island so magical. Its restaurant specialises in local Sicilian cuisine that showcases seasonal ingredients: the desserts are legendary.

Unahotels Naxos Beach Sicilia
Best for… gourmets
Given that this hotel enjoys one of the best beachside locations in Sicily, it seems indulgent for it to also have four beautiful swimming pools. But indulgence is at the heart of this gorgeous hotel, surrounded by its own private citrus park, and it showcases the best of local produce across its many restaurants and bars. Kids will love its entertainment program, daytime clubs and dedicated childrens’ restaurant; adults will love the elegant fine dining spot tucked away inside a restored villa on the grounds, and the luxury spa.
